Wondering how you will cope with labour and birth?
Are you somewhat fearful?
You are not alone.
Many women report feeling fearful of birth. Labour does not need to be feared.
Would you like to have a birth:
- without fear
- a birth where you feel in control
- a birth where you feel confident
- where the risk of intervention is halved
- where you are able to make decisions confidently about your care
- a positive birth experience .....
The Positive Birth Program I facilitate will empower you with a tool box full of natural and complementary techniques to use during labour such as: - Self Hypnosis - Relaxation techniques - Breathing techniques - Acupressure - Massage techniques - Visualisations - Aromatherapy - Music - Affirmations
The program will also empower you and your partner with knowledge about : - what you can do to prepare yourself and baby for labour in late pregnancy - the importance of movement in labour - the stages of labour - a quick and easy tool to guide you in making decisions about your care throughout pregnancy, birth and parenting - medical inductions - risks and benefits of medical intervention
The main aim of the Positive Birth Program is to prepare you and your partner for a positive birth experience no matter which way your journey takes you. I have taught antenatal classes for over a decade and whole heartedly believe this program gives you all the information and tools you will need for the day you and your partner welcome your baby into the world, earth side.

My partner and I were apprehensive about our first time pregnancy and birthing experience. I initially had fear of potentially needing medical intervention, while my partner had some anxiety around my risk of haemorrhaging during labour.
We found the Hypnobirthing Australia workshop facilitated by Astrid incredibly informative and insightful. Astrid brought extensive experience as a midwife to answer medical and antenatal questions, in addition to creating a safe and supportive environment to learn and practice hypnobirthing techniques. The safe space also allowed the couples to share personal stories and fears and receive reassurance by Astrid.
My partner and I both feel a sense of relief and empowerment preparing for labour now. By being more informed and having improved knowledge of the natural birthing process, it is safe to say I am feeling a lot more confident preparing for birth. We have a great list of strategies to practise and use during labour and feel better prepared as a couple.
I would recommend Astrid to facilitate your Hypnobirthing workshop, as her warm and friendly presence and clinical background offered a well balanced delivery of Hypnobirthing the direct benefits to improving your birthing experience.

I am beyond grateful that we chose Astrid and Mother Earth Birthing to do our hypnobirthing training! Astrid is the most down to earth, kind amazing human and she made us feel so comfortable when she came into our home to teach my husband and I our Hypnobirthing. She is such a good teacher and made it interesting so we could actually retain the knowledge.
We loved the Hypnobirthing side of things, and even more so the in depth birth education she provides from a midwives perspective. She also took such beautiful maternity photos for us and we even had the pleasure of her taking care of us in hospital after our little baby was born. I will forever be grateful for Astrid and her support and care. I highly recommend her to everyone!
Honestly the most incredible experience. Such informative classes and I’ve come away more empowered for my birth than ever. Astrid being a midwife could not only conduct a hypnobirthing class but also anti natal. She had a toolkit of affirmations, oils, meditation guides and could answer all our questions! I 100% recommend her classes and cannot wait to work with her further!

I was so nervous about labour and birth before I went to the weekend workshop with Astrid. She was able to not only calm my fears, but I actually now feel empowered to do this. My husband was very skeptical prior to going, but Astrid made him feel at ease and by the end of the workshop he has been raving about it to all our friends. Thank you Astrid for supporting us through this journey and empowering us with knowledge to know we can do this!
